Introducing the humans behind Doodles & Spice... Lisha, holder of cameras, Ezra, mini mister in the middle, and Keith, the undevoured (as he appears to be lunch for the T-Rex behind him). Over the past 20 years, we've grown our family, added all the spices that count, and experienced many an adventure along the way. Now, having added even more spice and worked hard to bring quality, hypoallergenic, and truly beautiful fur babies into the world, we're hoping to share our current adventure - of the furry, face-licking, warm snuggles variety - with you and your family! So, get ready to spice up your life with our secret ingredient... Bernedoodles!
Our Fur Family
Meet our fur family as well as our devoted pup parents!
CKC F1 Bernedoodle / Approx. 70lbs
Ginger is our tail-thumping, cuddle-craving F1 Bernedoodle.
In addition to being the most affectionate fluff giant you'll ever meet, she loves playing fetch and running zoomies around the yard - especially if it's wet out! She's also best buddies with the mini mister in the family picture above. She and Ezra enjoy playing tug-o-war and follow-the-leader. On hot days, however, they can often be found laying around in the shade and taking turns using each other as a pillow. Ginger is a notorious digger, though, and she's been know to catch a mole or two after tunneling through freshly mowed - or freshly sewn - grass.
Chai is our spirited, snuggle-seeking standard poodle.
Since joining our family, Chai and Ginger have proven inseparable. However, Chai will still compete for attention if belly rubs and ear scratchings aren't dolled out in equal measure. Unlike Ginger, who likes to keep her paws on the ground, Chai doesn't understand he's a dog. Having must been a goat in a past life, Chai enjoys climbing playground equipment, sliding down slides, and exploring the unknown. While he's very smart and has shown great progress with training, like a goat, he's infamous for eating very bizarre items indeed!
This lucky litter was born January 9th, 2023, and all have found their furever homes.
However, we hope to have another round of cuteness ready Spring 2024! You can see our Facebook page, Doodles & Spice, for more past pictures and videos.
Expectations & Guarantee
This is a breakdown of the more comprehensive list of expectations as well as our guarantee found in each puppy contract.
No Puppy Mill
Our puppies have been bred
in a single, loving home for the purpose of providing future companionship - and spice - to other families who will care for and love our puppies as much as we do. We are NOT a puppy mill or "backyard" breeder. Though, our fur-family most assuredly calls our back yard "home".
Each of our puppies has been evaluated by a certified veterinarian to be healthy and happy. They have had their dew claws removed and will come microchipped. They are up-to-date on immunizations and wormings, and are guaranteed against any preventable illnesses for 48 hours after leaving our home.
Our fur parents have been genetically tested using Embark. Our puppies come with a one-year guarantee against life-threatening or debilitating congenital or hereditary defects. *Please carefully read the full disclaimer of qualifications and exclusions in our puppy's health guarantee contract.
...Don't forget the just-as-important 1-2-3's below!
You promise to provide
a safe, healthy, and loving home - free of abuse and/or neglect - for the puppy you have *chosen* to become a *life-long* member of your family and household.
You promise to continue
*life-long* nutritional, grooming, and medical care. You promise to have your puppy evaluated by a licensed veterinary within four (4) business days of delivery or pick-up.
If at any time you find yourself unable to continue this commitment, you promise to give us the option to resume ownership to ensure a healthy and appropriate rehoming process.
All puppies come microchipped, and dew claws have been removed. Because they've started as members of our family,
they are also well socialized and kid approved. They're also doing great with leash, house, and obedience training.
Puppies are sold with "pet only" and "unlimited snuggle" agreements unless otherwise stipulated. * Below pricing does not include Indiana sales tax, delivery, or any online transaction fees. *
